THE SCIOTA VALLEY.
The stockholders of the Roanoke
and Southern Railroad Company held
a large and enthusiastic meeting at
Hie reading rooms of the Young Men's
Christian Association.
A very large amount of stock was re
presented and the session was a very
harmonious and pleasant one. Hon
Henry S. Trout, president of th
road, presided over the meeting
and S. W. Jamison was secretarj
The reports of the different officers
showed the financial affairs of tin
company to be in a very healthy
state and the condition of that por?
tion of the road that is completed
also in excellent shape. Division
"A," which extends from Winston,
N, C.. to Martinsville, Va., will be
completed hy December IPth, 1800.
Trains are now running from Winston
to Lad ford, a point twenty-eight
miles south of Martinsville. Nearly
all of the uncompleted section of Divi?
sion UA" has been graded and the
iron for all the bridges has been d is
tributed.
The Virginia and North Carolina
Construction Company has taken up
the option for the const ruction of Divi?
sion "B," that is that portion of the
road extending from Martinsville to
this city. The reports also repre?
sented that the net earnings of the
part of the road now in successful
operation, largely exceeds the running
expenses. The election of officers en?
sued with the following result : Presi?
dent, Hon. Heny S. Trout, of Roan?
oke ; first vice-president, J. W. Fries,
of Salem, N. C. : third vice-president.
J. H. Spencer,of Martinsville. Hoard of

thews, 1'. P. Watson, S. G. Sheffield,
C. B. Bryan, and J. O. Coan, of Mar
tinsville.
The question of the Roanoke appro?
priation was taken up and discussed.
It was agreed that even if the act was
unconstitutional,!"^could not possibly
have any elTeeton the prospects of the
road, which will be pushed to com
pletionwithout any delay. The route
from Martinsville to Roanoke is being
?urveyed, and as soon as the right of
way is settled, will be graded.
FnctH About tho Norfolk mid Want
em's Now TurclinNO.
It waa authentically announced y es?
terday from Philadelphia that the
Norfolk and Western Railroad Com?
pany has purchased the Soioto Valley
and New England railroad, a line 131
miles long running from Petersburg,
Ohio, a point this side of fronton, to
Columbus, Ohio.
This is a very important fact in rail?
road circles. It means that the Nor?
folk and Western has supplied the
link necessary to complete its West?
ern connect ion and will be a vigorous,
competitor of the hunk lines into
that rich and productive country,
bringing its freight to the Seaboard
at Norfolk.
The Ohio division of the Norfolk
and Western, or the Klkliorn Branch,
is now under rapid construction. It
extends from Bluestone Junction, a
point about two miles east of Poca?
hontas, crosses the Ohio river at
('credo, a point twelve miles west of
Huntington, and follows the river on
the Ohio side to Petersburg^ Ohio,
near Iron ton, and opposite Ashland,
Kentucky, where it connects with the
Scioto Valley and New England roajl,
making direct connection with ('oium
bus.
The route from here to Bluestone
Junction is about 370 miles; from
there to Petersburg about 150, and
from there to'CoIutnbus 131, making
a line of, say G50 miles, ali rail, from
Norfolk to Columbus, Ohio, under
one management. A glance at the
map shows Columbus as a railroad
center of immense importance, draw
ing from all directions. It presents
the appearance of the centre of a tre?
mendous spider's web.
The completion of tho roadbed of
the Klkliorn branch will thus put
Norfolk and Columbus together via
the Norfolk and Western, and is al?
most as near together as Norfolk and
Chattanooga are now.
It is impossible to overestimate the
value of this part of this forward
movement, and we make the an?
nouncement in congratulation to tho
people here and to the progressive
md aggressive management of the
Norfolk and Western Company,which
is now among the greatest railroad
enterprises in the United States, pur?
suing a bold and yet judicious well
onsidered' policy, commanding a
nagni?cerit property, penetrating a
country of inexhaustible commercial
and mineral treasure, and having
Norfolk as its ocean terminus. In the
language o!' one of our leading citi?
zens who expressed himself on the
event, "a great day this for our city."

The Debt Settlement.
No one can more eagerly wish for an
honorable settlement of the Virginia
debt question than the Index-Appeal
does, or would hail with more satis
faction any plan to that end. Never?
theless, we realize the utter imprac?
ticability Of the proposed New York
movement, or of any other movement
to settle the debt inconsistent with
Riddlebergeract as long as the debt
question is a political issue, and the
politicians who have fattened on it
for years are still alive and in posses
sion of the public teat. Not even the
recommendation of a board of arbi?
tration, composed of such distin?
guished men as Grover Cleveland,
Thomas F. Bayard, B. S. Phelps and
their associates, could prevail on
these gentlemen to surrender "their
sole political stock in trade/The

John Ryan was arrested yesterday
and carried before Judge Howerton
on the charge of having in his pos?
session stolen property. He says that
the night of the big rain he was
caught in it near the machine works,
and crawled into a box car. He was
wet and pulled off his coat so as to
dry it. He then dropped off to sleep.
During the night some one entered
the car and, spreading his coat out on
the floor, laid a number of small bits
upon it. This awakened Mr. Ryan,
and the man was frightened ofT. In
the morning he got up and was just
removing the bits from his coat when
some men came in and charged him
with taking the property. This he
deniad, and proved such a clear record
by responsible parties that the judge
released him.

Particulars of a serious and perhaps
fatal wreck on the ('ripple Creek div?
ision of the Norfolk and Western road
was received here yesterday.
Passenger train No. 'J. which left
Pulaski at :'. p. in. Saturday evening,
collided with a material train near
Ivauhoe. The material train, it is
said, was running on orders to meet
the passenger at a switch fourteen
miles from Ivanhoe. Tin- passenger,
it seems, had no orders against tho
train, and went thundering on to?
wards Ivanhoe, the material likewise
hastening towards the switch. They
met at a curve about midway between
the two points named and collided
with territic force.
There were only a few passengers
onboard the passenger train, and
t hey escaped with slight bruises oc?
casioned by the jar of the collision.
The engineer and fireman, however,
were not so fortunate. Both were
badly injured, the fireman by jump?
ing breaking one of his lower limbs
and sustaining serious internal in?
juries which may prove fatal, and the
engineer, who stood gallantly at his
post, being painfully scalded by escap?
ing steam.
On the material train were a Dum
berof negroes, who, all unmindful of
danger, were lounging on the Mat cars,
singing railroad songs or indulging in
thoughts Of thegood times they would
have at Pulaski on Sunday with
their dusky sweethearts, when lol the
crash came. Seven of them were in?
jured in various ways, some seriously
and others slightly* The most se?
riously injured, however, was one
named Baker, who, it is said, had one
side of Iiis head badly crushed by a
tool chest being thrown against him.
Strange to say. the engineer and fire?
man of the material train, both of
whom remained at their post, escaped

New York, June 17.?Tho races for
the Suburban stakes of $40,000 were
well attended and tlie fine day
brought a large crowd to the course.
The track was in excellent condition
as were also tho horses, and the scene
in front of the grand stand before the
races commenced was nevor more
brilliant.
Teuny was a favorite from the lirsl
with the bookmakers, and as the day
grew on the odds against him became
smaller and smaller, until just before
the start they wen- only 10 for 12.
Sal va tor was the favorite for place,
but he also sold for y for ? as the
winner.
At ~> o'clock the horses left the post.
Cassius led with Strideaway socond
and Longstreet a good third. At the
quarter Cassias was two lengths
ahead, while Longstreet had passed
Strideaway by a length.
At the half Cassiers had increased
his head by a length with Longstreet
still a good second and Strideaway
third.
At the three-fourths post Oassier.s
began to fail and was only two lengths
ahead, with Longstreet and Stridea?
way neck and neck.
Vt tho mile the horses got on their
metal and began to show what was
in them. Cassius struggled nobly,
but the other two were left behind,
and Salvator got a fresh wind and
forged into the second place. Long
street, however, stuck to third like
grim death, and Tenny, the favorite,
pushed forward only a length behind
tho winner.
Down the stretch the racers pushed
to the utmost by the jockeys. The
veins stood out on Salvator like whip?
cords, and urged by the whip he went
ahead like an arrow, closely followed
by Longstreet. Cassius, too, was
pushed, but he was no match for Sal
vator, who passed him like a flash
ami won by a neck.
Terry was a good third, while tie'
others straggled on behind. The
time was 2.06 -l ?.

A Fciuiile Hermit Who Died Stir
romidcU by Reptile*.
Salkm, Va., June 15.?A singular
character, by name Martha Ann Till
son, and who was known as the
"snake woman,'' died near here re?
cently. She lived in a little cabin at
the foot of Twelve O'clock Knob, and
led a hermit's life, having no one to
share her abode except snakes. By
the few who were ever allowed to
see the interior of her cabin it is said
to ha e literally swarmed with her
strange companions, with which she
ate and slept, and which were to be
seen lying in her bosom and coiled
about her neck, body and limbs when?
ever she was caught sight of.
Her extraordinary prediliction for
these unpleasant creatures is sup?
posed to have arisen from a nior
bid feeling that she was, like them,
hated of men, for naturally deformed,
sin- received in addition an injury to
the spine while an infant, and, "though
perfectly sound in mind, was of so
sensitive a nature as to render her
miserable and uneasy in the presence
of any but her parents. She was'ob?
served to steal away every day with a
pan of milk, and. on being followed,
was found to be caressing a doeen or
so hideous rattlesnakes, while they
drank from the vessel which she held
in her lap. Horrified, her parents
tried to reason with her. then to pun?
ish, and finally to confine her, in an
endeavor to break of her fondness for
the reptiles, but she pined so for her
pots that they feared she would die if
kept from them.
She was a little, fair woman of
about 4."5, with sandy hair, very
abundant and long, which she wore
in a number of tight plaits, which,
combined with her deformity and the
odd, miscellaneous style of dressin
the result of her refusal to hold any
communication with a fellow being
served to make her a most remark
able looking object. She was looked
upon as a witch by the negroes about
who declared her to be possessed of
the evil eye, and hated and feared
her accordingly, though her life was
a most harmless, quiet one. She had
been dead some flays when discovered
and her dead body was literally cov
ered by a writhing mass of snakes
which had to be killed before it could
be removed, for the snakes turned
viciously on all approaching the re
mains. On her heart was found coiled
a huge rattlesnake dead.
Kim Over nntl Killed.
Monday morning at an early hour
near Sands, in Page county, Robert
Campbell, a resident, was run over
by the south-bound night express on
the Shenandoah Valley railroad, and
instantly killed. Before the accident
was discovered a freight train follow?
ing also run over the unfortunate
man's remains, still further mangling
his body in a horrible manner. It is
said that Campbell left Sands late in
the evening in an intoxicated condi?
tion, and tlie supposition is that he
either attempted to cross the track in
front of the approaching train or else
laid down upon it.
